I'm not ready to write off Reimer and Scrivens just yet. I really would like to see a full season of Reimer healthy first. So far the results of an uninjured Reimer have been excellent. I'm confident that Scrivens will do just fine as a backup as well.
We lack assurances but given the team is young, I'm not too worried about that as pretty much the rest of the team is lacks veteran depth as well. If the team was a contender and has the expectations of going deep in the playoffs with no solid veteran presence in net, it's a different story entirely.
I'll support the decision either way but ideally I'd like to see us stay the course on the rebuild for the time being.
If a healthy Reimer posts a .900 avg by the break then yeah we will need to make a move most definitely. Don't see it happening though. Reimer has what it takes to play in this market which is worth a lot more than we give him credit for.
